The man, whose name and age have not been released, was killed in the 8700 block of Broadway about 2:45 this morning, HPD says.
The victim came to an apartment in a complex, police say, and several men tried to break down the door. When that failed, they fired shots at the door.
The man was shot as he was trying to escape, and died at the scene.
